Hey there everyone, new to the site. Early next year i am looking to study at uni, i have to do a course first to get into uni as i have been an ex student for to long and must obtain position into uni. Once i have finished that course (6 months or so) i would love to study Graphic/website design and am in the market to pick a new macbook pro. being a PC user untill now im ready to branch off and try using a mac after hearing many great things about them. now im not to worried about the money, i just am looking at some advice weather to go with a 15" or 17" macbook pro. like should i buy a 15" and get an external monitor or just a 17" inch. if someone could just include some reasons like battery life, carrying it around etc at uni. i appreciate it so much considering my situation if anyone could help me decide on which path to take, im a little nervous about the 17inch battery life. i know this topic has been brought up so many times before but thanks to anyone who takes the time to repply haychy.
